- I made pasta with broccoli and breadcrumbs yesterday! (I used panko because that is what I had. I keep my bread in the freezer, mostly, so I don't have stale bread around all that much. Also, I am lazy.) I was kind of doubtful about the whole thing; after all, I make a lot of pasta with broccoli, and figured the breadcrumbs wouldn't make much of a difference. But it was rather tasty.
- I saw this "feel better" card in the bookstore:http://www.uncookedlandthestore.com/card-categories/detail.php?id=216
[text on card: "it's days like these i realize maybe i'm not from the future. if i was, i would have known you were getting sick and i could have done something to save you."]
I would love to read that story, but would have no idea how to write it...
- I also discovered that Adrian Tinniswood has a new book out, which is exciting! I really enjoyed his book The Verneys
, and this one, The Rainborowes
, likewise charts the history of an early modern family. (I still haven't read his book about the Great Fire of London, because every time I think I might want to read it, I follow that thought with "...but it's probably going to make me sad...")
